Ramshorn snails and Zebra danios

Hi. I have a tropical tank with one male Betta and three Zebra Danios. I recently put 13 ramshorn snails in there to breed for my GSP (in seperate tank). My problem is, I have started seeing egg batches all around the tank and the first couple have hatched and they are now seemingly gone! I cant see any little snails anywhere. Do you think my zebra danios could have eaten them? If so.. do I have any chance of breeding snails in this tank?

Any substrate they could be hiding down in? Peg some lettuce in over night and see if any turn up?

Most of us have never had fish that eat snails, aside of course from a few of the loaches or similar. Just wait, you will likely be over-run in no time and be asking us how to get rid of them.

Thank you. I have a Green Spotted Puffer that will gobble them up as fast as I could feed them to him. lol He/she loves to eat.

Yes, puffers will certainly take care of snails.

When they first hatch they are pretty much microscopic. The only way I can see them is if I pretty much smoosh my face against the glass and stare really hard. They're pretty much clear as juveniles, but they grow up pretty fast. If you ever start running low on them, just let me know. I'd be more than happy to send you a few, haha :)
